Seeing a Memory Form

What memories are made of, at least at the cellular level, has been visualized for the first time by a team of scientists at the University of California at Irvine. Changes in the size and shape of synapses, the connections between neurons, store our memories. This both verifies recent thinking and opens the way to map the storage of memory across the entire brain.  The research has important implications for the management of memory-related disease and other disorders.
